Hello Sweet Girl | Lawn Fawn


Hello everyone! Happy Friday today I am showcasing some Lawn Fawn products. I was asked to make a baby shower card and this is what I created.

I used two stamp sets Hello Baby and Cheery Christmas. I needed more baby animals to fill my scene so I paired the two stamps. First I stamped the images with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink, and coloured them with Copic markers. I then used the coordination dies to cut them out and set them aside.

I die cut my background from Bristol paper using MFT Die-namics Blueprints 27 and ink blended the frames with distress oxide inks. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the panel and highlighted the wording with white gel pen. The critters are then adhered onto the frames with dimensional dots and the panel is attached to a top folding #100lb Fog card base. Have a wonderful weekend!

You and Coffee | Simon Says Stamp | My Favorite Things


This was a fun card to make with a lots of masking involved, I got my inspiration from Therese Calvird and her card on the Highlighted Stamping technique!

Therese Calvird
I didn't know she had a video and I based my card from inspiration of the repetition of her cats and thought coffee cups would look neat. I started with the foreground and worked myself up. I messed up once and had to start over on this card but that is how you learn. Every cup is stamp three times to get just the right amount of ink coverage. Our cute little cat is from My Favorite Things - I Knead You set, I left a fair amount of room for him to roll around amongst the cups. It took a bit to fit him in there just perfectly.

I coloured the cat with Copic markers and stamped a sentiment in Versamark ink and heat set it with White embossing powder on black card stock. The panel is then mounted onto 1/8" foam and adhered onto a #100 side fold Fog card base.

It's Your Day | Lawn Fawn


This was more of a detailed card with it being interactive as the little boy moves from left to right, with getting the die placement just perfect on the Lawn Fawn Road Borders Die. In this card I used lots of coloured card stock to create the background to build my scene.

The little boy on his bicycle and his kitty were all coloured with Copic Markers. Spectrum Glitter Sparkle was added to the flower bouquet and Glossy Accents was added to the bicycle. The sentiment is stamp in Versamark Onxy Black Ink and Lawn Fawn Fish Tank. The panel is then adhered to a #110 White top folding card base.

Mother's Day Bike Ride | Lawn Fawn


I got to play with a few really great Lawn Fawn dies for this Mother's Day Card. I love how they coordinate together, and everything just flows nicely when you have all the tools to work with. I used a lot of card stock for this card as I had recently saved since December and had many items on a wish list building up it was time for a haul.

I stamped out my images first on Neenah 80Lbs card stock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and colored them with Copics. I then started to create my background, I die cut the sky from Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue and the grass from Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf card stock, then I cut the fence from White card stock. I inlayed the path into the grass and die cut it out with Slate card stock and the inside markings with Sunshine card stock.

The sentiment is stamped with Versamark Onyx Black ink, the panel is then attached to a White #110Lbs card base and Spectrum Noir Sparkle is added to the balloons, flowers and the little girls dress. Glossy Accents are added to the balloons for an added detail. The stamped images were raised with foam top for dimension.

Mother's Day Kitty Wreath Card | IsabelCristina Stamps | WPlus9


Here is my attempt at the Gink K. Wreath Builder, I got my idea for the background panel from one of Jennifer McGuire's videos called Wreath Builder Stamping and thought I would give it a try. I don't have many tiny flower stamp sets but I made this one work for me and since I was just having fun playing making a wreath I now know what I would do differently next time.

The kitty image is by IsabelCristina Stamps her illustrations are so adorable. I printed the kitty image on Neenah paper and colored it in with Copics and popped it up with foam tape. I adhered the background panel to Simon Says Stamp Lavender Card Stock and cut a strip for the sentiment.

I added a bit of gold sparkle paper detail, on the strip of lavender. And stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Assembled the rest of the card together adding foam tape where it needed to be raised.
